PeCOD® Analyzer for Source & Treated Drinking Waters
The revolutionary PeCOD® Analyzer technology measures the chemical reactivity and associated oxidative changes in Natural Organic Matter (NOM). As a result it is more sensitive than TOC and UV254 to changing NOM concentrations. Traditional NOM surrogates (UV254, SUVA, TOC, DOC) may not be suitable for assessing NOM removal in all cases, as they are often calibrated or “tuned” to the specific site matrix. peCOD (photo-electrochemical Chemical Oxygen Demand) is independent of the matrix, therefore...
